Arrogant win in the Herbert Power. Ridden like he was the best horse in the race and duly saluted. The Caulfield Cup run though is the concerning factor because he was a beaten horse a fair way out and didn’t show much fight. Petrol tank might well be empty.

Naturalism Stakes (2000m), September 18 2021, Caulfield, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Good Surface
Another stride and he wins. Excellent second up effort, just missing out on picking up Nonconformist, who has franked the form in the Might And Power and overall, the form out of this race has been quite strong.
Herbert Power (2400m), October 9 2021, Caulfield, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Good Surface
Arrogant win. Ridden like he was the best horse in the race and duly bolted up, with something in hand, I dare say keeping in mind the Caulfield Cup on the horizon. Lovely tune up for the big race.
Caulfield Cup (2400m), October 16 2021, Caulfield, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface
Market loved him as the main threat to Incentivise. Got a soft time of it early but that horse just broke his heart from the 1000m mark and Delphi spat the dummy out when a beaten horse.
